Kids at Norval Foundation


Norval Foundation’s Education Programme works hard to ensure that every child, whether homeschooled or attending private or public school, visits the Norval Foundation at least once in their primary school or high school careers.

Research has proven that art education plays an integral part in the holistic development of a child. It has been shown that children who have been exposed to art are:


  • Imparted with values such as sharing and perseverance.
  • Able to improve motor skills.
  • Able to create art that they are proud of, which improves their self esteem.
  • Better prepared for honing critical thinking skills, which improves their academic performance.





Every month we host crafty workshops which relate to our exhibitions or simply offer an hour of arty fun for kids of all ages!

Please subscribe to the kids newsletter above to stay informed of future workshops.

Please email kids@norvalfoundation.org to book, or for more info.
